Guy Domville Siner (born 16 October 1947) is an American-born English actor best known for his role as Oberleutnant Hubert Gruber in the British television series 'Allo 'Allo! and Dr. Mittenhand in Leprechaun 4: In Space.
Siner was born in New York City. His father was American, born in Manhattan, New York, and his mother was English, born in Bexhill-on-Sea, Sussex. His mother wanted him to be educated in the United Kingdom, and the family returned there when he was five.
